The shape of the natural flower is obtained by cutting the foundation in a deep point on one side and covering with twisted petals. Two shades of violet are cut and twisted together. When making them cut every other one quite a little deeper. Twist the petals as shown in the How to Make Petals for Costumes page.

The entire waist is covered with crushed green crepe and a strip of tan crepe, twisted to represent a vine, forms the finish around the neck, arms and bottom of the waist.
